Apple Music and NASA Team Up on Short Film and Exclusive Songs Celebrating Juno Mission
Jun 30, 2016 1:13 pm PDT by Juli Clover
Apple and NASA have collaborated on a short musical film [Direct iTunes Link] called "Visions of Harmony," which is designed to celebrate NASA's Juno spacecraft reaching Jupiter's orbit. First launched in 2011, Juno is expected to enter Jupiter's orbit on the evening of July 4, giving us our closest ever look at the gas giant and the secrets hidden beneath its dense cloud cover.


According to the new "Destination: Jupiter" section of Apple Music, Apple has collaborated with NASA and the Juno team to offer "education and inspiration throughout the historic journey."


"Visions of Harmony" celebrates the link between exploring space and making music, featuring songs from artists like Weezer and Nine Inch Nails frontman and Apple exec Trent Reznor. Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross created a song inspired by sounds emitted by Jupiter, which features actual recordings from the planet, while Weezer wrote a single called "I Love the USA."

Other music featured on Apple's Destination: Jupiter page comes from artists like Corinne Bailey Rae, Quin, Brad Paisley, Zoé, Jim James, and GZA the Genius.

I'm not the biggest fan of Apple Music by any stretch, but anything that promotes the exploration of the universe is absolutely fine by me. :)

Does the list feature Gustav Holst? His composition would be ideal in this situation I would think!

If at least one of these songs was appropriate for a mission close to the biggest planet of our solar system. It's all pop music -_-
Probably searching for Space Music in Spotify produces better results.

The classical music score "Jupiter, The Bringer Jollity" composed by Holst would have been more appropriate for this video.


The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is touring through Europe right now. For example:

The program varies from venue to venue, but includes the complete "Planets", and either the complete "Also sprach Zarathustra" or parts of it, with some film music from 2001 added.

"education and inspiration throughout the historic journey." who writes this nebulous poop ? Sounds like the spin Tony Blair fed us just before the manure hit the fan.

Gives NASA some extra converge i guess. I was trying to see what science has anything to do with Apple music.
